Jubilant England fans necked 42million pints as England thumped Ukraine 4-0

JUBILANT England supporters shrugged off monster hangovers yesterday after brewing up a Euro 2020 semi-final clash with Denmark.

Three Lions fans necked 42million pints on Saturday night as plucky Ukraine were thumped 4-0.


But the headaches will probably, no definitely, be bigger if we beat the Carlsberg beer nation on Wednesday night.

England’s victory in Rome pulled in a peak TV audience of 20.9million viewers.

Happy fans emerging from 18 months of Covid misery packed beer gardens and fanzones to watch the action, as well as at home.

Breweries scrambled lorries to deliver ten million extra pints to bars to ensure stocks did not run out.

Booze industry data showed 23million pints were drunk at home and 19million in pubs.

Crowds chanted “football’s coming home” and scaled the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain in London’s Piccadilly Circus.

Pandemonium erupted at a fan park in nearby Trafalgar Square as Jordan Henderson’s header sealed Ukraine’s fate.


Ecstatic supporters in Brighton got the pier shaking, while revellers crowd-surfed in celebration in Newcastle.

Harry Maguire’s goal soon after half time triggered an eruption of joy in his native Sheffield where revellers leapt into the fountain in Barker’s Pool.

Residents draped bunting from house to house to create a giant St George’s flag in Bristol.

James Curran was among the lucky Lionhearts who made it to Saturday’s quarter-final at Rome’s Olympic Stadium.

James, who travelled from Prague in the Czech Republic with two pals, said: “'It has been the most amazing night.

“I don’t think anyone in the stadium expected this result. Everyone is in dreamland.”

Fan fun even spread to No10, where Boris Johnson stood on a giant flag of St George after tweeting: “Bring it home.”
